I do not see this in the AppCenter...  I am presently trying Palemoon and would like to evaluate this as well.  The browsers in the AppCenter are simply too large for my N270 Atom to be practical.  I just attempted to install Synaptic from the AppCenter and the "Install" button did not work.  I recently upgraded both Bodhi netbooks to 3.2.1...last week?

You should know that only a few browsers support the function of apt-url by default. Some can be configured to use it though, like firefox.

Midori is the browser that comes with Bodhi and we know it does handle the Appcenter well, but I suppose Palemoon does not.

 

If you want to take advantage of the Appcenter you can (re)install Midori, even when using it only for that purpuse. I never had issues with it on my little eeepc.

 

Enjoy,

Charles.

 

PS: in terminal use

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends midori

Waiter & Charles,

 

The communication I posted was lacking...  I have Firefox (v. 49) on my netbook and it works yet, so does Midori.  The challenge is playing video content I need.  Prior to migrating some of my computers to Bodhi I purchased some movies on Google Play for my son.  I have yet to be able to identify a means to play these on the Bodhi pc's.  My current error message is concerned with licensing these videos as Google Play displays a message indicating they cannot.  This means a DRM or CDM issue yet, Widevine is not a Linux product currently.

 

I reached for Palemoon based on recommendations here.  I recently earned they have a special build for the Intel Atom so, I chose to work with it.  However, it appears they plan to remove support for this and possible all 32-bit products.

 

I loved the early Opera on Windows and this brought my attention to Vivaldi.

Re: playing video. I didn't find out until a few months ago that chrome on Linux would work with Netflix. The only gotcha was it had to be the 64 bit version. I read yesterday that Firefox 49+ should play Netflix as well. I was going to ask it also required the 64 bit version, but, the site wanted me to register to post.

For legal reasons the following packages are not included in the iso:

 

libdvdcss2: to recognize DVD

libdvdread4: to read DVD

libdvdnav4: to navigate DVD

 

If you can't find the libdvdcss2 package in the repos you can try installing libdvd-pkg

 

Hope this helps.

 

Enjoy,

Charles
